My first real astral experience took place shortly after I found Belsebuub’s courses. There were still a few weeks to wait until the next astral travel and dreams course was going to run, but I began to make use of the resources available. I read the public forums every day and began posting questions…
One day, someone gave me an amazing piece of advice: astral projection comes down to concentration and having a clear goal in mind.
They didn’t recommend any techniques in particular, but I knew what my goal was: to have a conscious out-of-body experience.
That night, I lay down to sleep on my back and decided to repeat the phrase “I am going to have a conscious out-of-body experience” in my mind.
I repeated this over and over and over and over and over and over again…
I must have said it hundreds of times; this was all very new to me so I didn’t feel bored with the repetition.
I’m not sure if I fell asleep and dreamed for a little bit or if I caught myself at the onset of falling asleep, but the next thing I remember was suddenly feeling very awake but still deeply relaxed physically.
I then felt very light and sort of like I was “flickering”: rapidly oscillating between being weightless and feeling my body on the bed. Eventually the weightlessness dominated and I felt myself lifting off of my bed.
I could suddenly see – my eyes must have opened up spontaneously. My room was lit up by an astral light: no lights were on, but I could see everything clearly as though the midday sun were coming in through the window.
Still remaining horizontal, I floated up above my bed towards the wall on my left and then I swayed to the right towards my window. I just floated around like a leaf in the air, without any control.
I must admit I was quite startled by all of this because this all took place quite quickly over the course of maybe 2 or 3 seconds. I then heard a loud noise and I awoke back in bed.
